Carol Service for Mercy Ships

Wednesday November 30

The charity Mercy Ships is bringing some festive cheer with its popular annual Christmas Carol Service at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral, Palmerston Place, Edinburgh on Tuesday December 13 at 7.30pm.

Mercy Ships operates the world’s largest charity hospital ship, the Africa Mercy, providing free healthcare services to people living in developing countries where the services of professional medical staff are most needed.

The floating hospital is currently docked in the port of Cotonou, Benin, for a ten-month field service during which the international team of medical volunteers will perform 1,700 life-changing surgeries on-board and treat over 8,000 people at a land-based dental clinic.

Singing at the service will be the St Mary’s Cathedral Choir. Mulled wine and mince pies will also be served afterwards.

Lea Milligan, Executive Director of Mercy Ships UK, said: “The Service is open to all friends and supporters of the charity and is free to attend, although we are grateful for any donations given on the night that will help Mercy Ships to continue its life-changing work. Come and join us for a fantastic evening of prayer and celebration!”

If you wish to attend, email or call 01438 727800.
